Cloaked in thick, soft, dark green foliage from top to bottom the Green Giant Arborvitae makes an almost instant privacy screen. Often used in commercial settings to block undesirable views, imagine what it will do for you to block nosy neighbors!
Many neighborhoods have limitations on the size of fences. But you won't have to worry about that with a row of these gorgeous trees. Use them to create a magnificent backdrop that requires very little maintenance.
Very Hardy Native Tree
Arborvitae means "tree of life", which attests to the hardy nature of this evergreen tree. You won't have to worry about it surviving ice storms or heavy snow. Birds love it, but most insects don't, and it is deer resistant, especially when mature. It grows well in most soils, and even during dry periods it's incredibly fast-growing. It's native to North American, and has flexible branches that bend - even with heavy snow falls.
Super Height, Super Fast!
As its common name implies, this is a "giant" Arborvitae. The sprays of foliage begin at the base of the Arborvitae and extend slightly upward along the entire tree. The vibrant green coloring stays true all year, not even fading during the cold winter months. Spacing them at 15' apart ensures a super thick screen very quickly.
Great Along Your Property Line or as a Specimen
Although stunning in rows, the Green Giant Arborvitae can also be planted alone as a sentinel in your yard or plant them in groups to form a living frame highlighting a special part of your landscape. They're also a beautiful living wall shielding you from unwanted views, noise and wind.

"I usually purchase nursery items from Lowe's/Home Depot, this was my first time purchasing trees online. I bought 6 Green Giant Arborvitaes from Nature Hills, which were shipped/delivered very quickly, and arrived in pristine condition/very healthy looking.
Based on my experience with them, I would definitely recommend Nature Hills Nursery.
We have had Green Giants over the years, and they are the fastest growing/best looking/most disease resistant of the evergreens."
